Economic policy positioning

Region: West Africa
Country: Nigeria

In April 2005, ASI commenced a new project for the Bureau of Public Enterprises in Nigeria to assist it in building the economic case for privatisation. This includes fixed telephony, ports, rail and electricity sectors each of which has been or is likely to be opposed by various interest groups.
This project provided the BPE with detailed economic and wider impact arguments to counter such opposition and build support for the reform of state enterprises operating in these infrastructure sectors.
